B. Crafty, like a fox.
So here we go.
We recently turned our dining room into a playroom for the boys. Post Birthday and Christmas there was just too much stuff and no room at the inn. Plus, carpets are not the best option for feeding a 3 year old and 15 month old. We would eat dinner with Charlie sitting in his separate room (the kitchen) at a safe viewing distance, and optimal for his mad food-launching skills. That didn't really keep Mikey from dropping half of each meal onto the floor, so, enough said, we are a happier family in the kitchen.
Anyway, the playroom. I received a free $20 to use from Shutterfly, and I am a sucker for "free", and even though I had to pay $15 in shipping, I still think I got the bang for my buck. I ordered the collage vinyl wall decal, but used different chevron prints from online instead of pictures, and so I ended up with cute wall decal that I can remove without damaging the walls, and it adds a nice pop of color for the room. Check it:
I also found some cute patterned shelf liner for like $6 bucks at TJMAX, so I put it over cardboard, framed it using a frame that I already had, and printed out this cute free printable from online, and I have yet again another cute pop of color.
I found this cute little rocking horse at Salvation Army for $8.00! It was all scratched up and drawn on, but nothing a fresh coat of spray paint couldn't fix. I decided on light gray, gender neutral, you know?
big sis thanks to supporting Hobby Lobby! Don't you love it? It's perfect for the playroom, but may eventually end up in Charlotte's nursery. We will see.
And for your final viewing pleasure, the view of the playroom from the safety of my kitchen. Pretty cute for under $50 total, wouldn't you agree? Yes, this mess occurred within 30 seconds after I took the first pictures. They're THAT GOOD.
Have a great day!
